Beer added by: SteveO1231 on 12-31-2005

A West Coast IPA that features Amarillo and Simcoe hops "in harmony," giving a light, floral aroma. Duet is nicely bitter with the perfect amount of malt concealed behind the hoppy goodness. Immensely drinkable, amazingly light on its feet.

22oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Justin!

Poured into a imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" off-white head over the clear golden brew. Head slowly fizzles away, with lasting lace. Aroma is all about the citrus.

Taste is moderate sweetness to start, which is quickly overpowered by citrus hoppiness in the middle, and cruises through the close with pine and ample but not overpowering bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is easy. Excellent brew, and shows how we can have plenty of hops character and flavor, yet keep the bitterness under control. Bitter is nice, but bitter for bitter's sake gets old. None of that here. (671 characters)

22oz. Bomber $7 from local liquor store

Look: Crystal clear bronze with a really aggressive white head.

Smell: Woah! Huge grapefruit and citrus hops completely envelops the nose!

Taste: Citrus bomb! Huge grapefruit, orange, tangerine, lemon, and clementine notes leasd to a really nice earthy hop mellow that rounds out with a nice malt backbone. Citrus hops linger throughout and long after each sip! A bit like biting into marmalade on toast!

Mouthfeel: At first it's wet and quenching but that quickly dries out like a nice champagne. the 7% ABV is undetectable! Perfect body!

Overall: Wow. Heard great things about this one and boy did it live up. Every aspect really works together. From the citrus hop bomb to the malt balancing act to the superb dry finish that allows the hops to shine through again. In a market filled with IPA's this one is something special. Get it. (885 characters)

Believe the hype! This mutha is fo RE-al.

Poured from 22 oz bomber acquired via trade into chilled pint glass. Beautiful light orange color, nice fluffy 1-inch white head, and lots of tiny bubbles with ample sticky lacing throughout. The nose is a gorgeous mango/grapefruit/papaya olfactory orgasm. And the flavors on the palate, while less fruity/floral than the nose, do not disappoint. To the contrary, piney resin and grapefruit notes lend a mellow balance to the solidly structured hop profile, with virtually zero alcohol burn evident. The mouthfeel is as full and chewy as an IPA can get, while the finish is long, smooth, lasting, and complex.

Really love this beotch. Will come back to her lair often! (712 characters)

Full, four-finger head on top of clear orange brew. Head has great retention and lacing, decent legs too.

Light, crisp, orange, red apple, apricot, coriander.

Smooth, crisp, wet, complex bitterness. Carbonation light and provides a pillowy smooth foam on-top of the strong flavors of orange, apricot, guava, and mild pine. Nice drawn-out sweetness. Very punctual flavors. Not heavy on pine, very reliant on other strong flavors.

If I had one word to describe this brew, it would be smooth. This brew rocks, highly drinkable. No date on the bottle, but I can tell the hops have faded and have fallen apart a bit. It's still nice and crisp, just not as strong as I had at GABF. Definitely recommended. I'd love to re-review as fresh as possible. (749 characters)

The color is a golden California sunset. Extraordinary nose: All sticky weed, grapefruit and a strange, almost Brett-like, hint of eraser. The lightest and most delicate IPA I've ever had. It's utterly refreshing and shockingly not the least bit bitter. This beer is in a whole other realm from your typical swill IPA that dominates American shelves. It's smooth and sophisticated where others are uncouth, bitter bores. Imagine grapefruit without a hint of bitterness; a fresh, warm loaf of sourdough just out of the oven and a fragrant lemon orchard in a glass. Phenomenal. (575 characters)

Pours a clear bright gold. Nice bubbly head. Smell is amazing. Vibrant tropical fruit. Lots of citrus, all hops. Great. The taste is fruity, only slightly bitter. Grapefruit, citrus, bitter rind. Their is a lemon flavor that is dominating the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, decent carbonation. This is a very juicy ipa, with a lot of lemon flavor. Very nice and smooth. (378 characters)

The beer comes in a very familiar IPA color. Golden orange, a bit hazy, a small white head with a good amount of lacing.

The aroma reminds me a bit of Jai Alai. Tropical fruits, tons of orange, sweet orange peel, tangerine. Some pineapple, peach, and papaya. A very good smelling beer.

The flavor is where this beer explodes. There’s this stiff punch of pineapple and grapefruit essence. Tangerine and sweet citrus fruit are in there in the front and then onto the Simcoe. This beer is not sweet as it simply has the essence of the hops with a bready backbone to move the beer along. The finish again moves more into some grapefruit and some pine as it warms. Not a very bitter beer at all, but very clean and dry.

The beer is gorgeously clean and easy drinking. Quite a light body on this as it drinks down so easy, yet has tons of hop flavor. Easily one of the best IPAs out there. It’s not a mind blowing beer exactly, but it’s so well constructed and so refreshing. I would love to have this every day. (1,016 characters)

Received Duet and Nelson recently and after trying both I was very impressed with Duet. Quickly became one of my favorite beers and has been seeking out more already. Appearance is a lighter golden clean beer. Smell was very fruity and citrusy. Little bits of mango and pineapple come through as well as some grapefruit but the big smell is orange. Taste was similar to the smell. Lots of orange citrus flavor shines. Tasted like someone dropped an orange in my glass. Mouthfeel was smooth and perfectly carbonated. Very good drinkable beer that had me asking for another bomber. (579 characters)

Thanks to MaltMilkshake for the bottle. 22oz. bomber poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

A: Deep golden color with a quickly fading white head.

S: A mostly citrus/fruit juice smell upfront, with notes of pineapple, orange, and grapefruit.

T: Annnd there's the fruit juice. Mango, pineapple, and even some green apple shining through with the usual citrus flavors. Nice malty notes on the backbone. Not overly hoppy, but an almost perfect balance between the hops and malts.

M: Medium-bodied, lower carbonation.

O: One of the better IPAs I have come across. Like previously stated, the amazing balance between the hops and the malts makes Duet stand out. My first beer from Alpine, but definitely going to seek this one out again. Can't wait to open the Pure Hoppiness I have in my fridge... (797 characters)

MANY thanks to TasterMike for this one! 22 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden amber color. The head is a one finger white shade that's relatively soapy, yet consistent and dense. Retention is quite solid, and so is the lacing left behind.

S: Oh yeah, that's the stuff. This brings the hops in a fantastic manner - it doesn't bring any significant biting pine notes, rather it's mostly stuff like melon, mango, and grapefruit. The bready malts come through enough...and I do mean 'enough'. Which is to say it's quite faint, but not nonexistent.

T: Oh yeah, that's the-- wait, I wrote that down already. Nevermind, this just works brilliantly. The first few sips have a decent malt backbone sandwiched by a fruity opening and a mildly bitter finish. Right after the swallow, it's very reminiscent of fruit juice. People who say that an IPA can't/shouldn't be balanced need to try this - the hop flavor, the bitterness, and the malt backbone are in perfect harmony with one another. If this uses crystal malt - and I think I can taste hints of its toffee qualities buried in here - I may have to drop my petty grudge towards it, because this beer is fantastic.

M: I don't really notice the low carbonation or medium body too much - it's so dry (in all the right ways) that it still goes down with superb ease. Malt sweetness builds very slightly on the aftertaste, but it's not bothersome by any means.

O: Holy frig, this is like Sculpin on steroids. Ergo, it's now in my top 5 list for IPAs. This is the kind of beer that makes me want to move to San Diego just so I can consume this like water. (1,616 characters)

Thanks to eyebereej for this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a deep gold, hazy, with a half-finger of white head that fades quickly. Moderate level of visible carbonation.

S: Big tropical fruit and juicy citrus hops, with milder resin, melon and grapefruit rind aromas. Just a hint of biscuit malts underneath.

T: Tropical fruits and melon, orange and grapefruit citrus, a touch of resin and spicy hops, all over top of a sweet biscuit malty backbone. The hops hit up front, fade into the malt, then a nice hop bitterness shows up that lasts after the swallow - but not overly bitter at all.

M: Medium body, low alcohol presence. Carbonation sensation is fairly low.

O: This is really tasty, very well-done. The lack of enough carbonation sensation hurts the overall impression. But it still tastes very good. Recommended for sure. (891 characters)

What an outstanding IPA and beer in general. The hoppy bitterness is elegant rather than harsh. It pours a bright golden orange. Smells a lot like citrus, a little fruity almost, and like some grade A hop goodness.

Tastes fantastic. Reminds me a lot of some other IPAs (Blanking on which ones), but it has something to it that has to be experienced first hand, that blows other IPAs out of the water. Alpine delivering a great product here. (441 characters)

22 oz bomber poured into a Speigelau tulip

Pours a golden copper clear body with a big off-white head of medium sized bubbles with good retention and lacing.

Smell is very piney, earthy, and floral. Small amounts of citrus notes with grapefruit and lemon being predominant. Some honeysuckle. Nice aroma.

Taste is very west coast, with a piney bitterness to the hops up front, more sweet than I would have expected though, some floral and citrus notes rounding out the taste with a dry finish and bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, medium bodied, well carbonated, actually a great feel to this.

Overall, a really refreshing beer, the highlight being how easy-drinking it is. Definitely one of the smoothest IPAs I can remember. Some of the hop flavor may have fallen off since the bottling, and I'd like to try this fresh one day, but still highly enjoyed and definitely recommended. (900 characters)

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

A - Pours a golden amber, almost clear, with a one finger white head, As the head dissipates there is a nice amount of lacing on the glass.

S - The first thing that hits the nose is citrus. It's delightful smell that only hints at the taste to come. There are also hints of pine in the background.

T - The taste is well balanced with only a hint of the alcohol. The variety of citrus notes are at the forefront with only a slight bitterness. There is a nice amount of malt also.

M - A medium bodied beer with a light malt feel.

An excellent IPA. This would be a regular with me if I was able to get it on a regular basis. (672 characters)

22oz courtesy of peteinSD. Then many other tap pints. Pours a clear light amber/orange with a super rocky, tan head that leaves lacing all over the place. Aroma is outstanding: dank West coast IPA with butterscotch, pineapple, orange juice, orange blossom, mango, lavender/hibiscus. Lots of floral hops. Taste is nicely balanced: super bitterness in the back of the tongue is put in check by butter and tropical fruits up front. Almost soapy, flower pedal, piney/sappy hops all over the place with lots of caramel and butterscotch to balance. This is world-class IPA without a doubt. One of my favorites. When it is fresh, it is unbeatable. (640 characters)

Beer pours clear amber with not a lot of head. The color would allude to a good amount of maltiness. Very nice.

Smells fantastic. Huge hop prescience. Not very bitter. There is pineapple, mango, orange, and a little pine/grass scent. Clean and balanced.

Balanced is the name of the game with this guy. Don't get me wrong, the flavor is huge for an ipa. Pineapple, orange, brown sugar, and a little of those earthy notes here. The flavor is huge. I can't believe this isn't a double ipa. Super drinkable. Some bitterness on the backend.

Mouthfeel reminds me a lot of HF. The creaminess factor is present, but the hazy glow is gone which, for whatever reason, really affects my perception of the MF. Regardless, this beer is very well-exicuted. Amazing example of a big IPA.

Amazing ipa. It's no Susan, but one of the best for sure. Thanks for the gift, LaChupacabra! You're an awesome BA! (893 characters)

Really? One of the premier IPA brewers in the country and no bottle date? Mega-fail. This is somewhat fresh as far as I know.

A: A clear gold pour. Big effervescent light tan head (more off-white than anything). Head fades slowly with great retention. Moderate little specks of lacing left behind.

S: Ohhhh yeah. Big, juicy hops. Tropical fruit and citrus mainly. Sticky sweet oranges, pineapples, tangerines. Wonderful crisp and juicy aroma. A bit of sugary caramel backs it up. Really nice aroma.

T: Okay, maybe I misread the aroma. Huge hop wave up front but it's pine and resin and lots of it. Big biting hops. Malt is very mild and bready. Bitter from start to finish but an extra big wave of bitterness in the finish. Long lingering piney, resin, almost sappy hop flavors between sips. Get brief hits of citrus here and there but the simcoe stands out by itself mostly. Quite dry. By long lingering I mean LONG lingering, you can still taste the drying hops for several minutes after each sip.

M: Nice smooth medium body. Very crisp and dry to accentuate all the hops (or is it vice-versa?)

O: Damn. Really nice IPA, one of the best. Big bitter and drying hop character from beginning to end. Complex and strong hop flavor and aroma. Just enough malt to be noticeable but does not detract. A proper west coast IPA from a master brewer. (1,347 characters)

Beautiful light golden and coppery ale that looks perfectly alive with carbonation. One finger head of smooth white foam that fades relatively quickly.

Delicate floral aroma with a hint of citrus or tropical hops (tough to determine), and a light bready malt background.

Immediate dry hops on the tongue and palate, followed by a wave of hop flavors: I thought sweet citrus at first, with a major following of floral and clove honey, all mixed with a subtle malt backbone. That big first blast may be pine. Each sip is very complex, and seems to deliver a slightly different taste.

Bright and refreshing, with a medium malt body. Sprightly and alive; light sting.

This is a very tasty, complex, hop-forward, and refreshing IPA. Oh, and its appearance is lovely. Just enough malts to smooth out the experience.

Thanks to JayORear for the trade! (848 characters)

I have drunk a lot of IPA's and even had Pliny the Elder which is considered a top of the line IPA. This IPA was among the best I've ever had; I can honestly say it may be the best. I was traveling in CA and stopped at Stearn's Liquor mart and picked up a bottle of this. This is one of the smoothest IPA's I've ever had, yet bitter and a outstanding IPA... if you ever get a chance to get a hold of this IPA I'd advise you to buy it. Only issue with it is that I live in Kentucky and this stuff is made in CA... I need to find a way to get a hold of this stuff here locally. (575 characters)

A: Lightly hazy, golden orange color with a huge, creamy-looking white head.
S: Sweet, fruity aromas dominate. Huge notes of citrus, pineapple, peaches, and a bit of honey.
T: This is delicious. Not extremely bitter, just super well-balanced. Lots of big, tropical fruits dominate. Juicy mango, tangerines and peaches followed by grapefruit bitterness and honey-like sweetness.
M: Medium bodied with above average carbonation.
O: A bit too much carbonation, but this is one super drinkable and delicious beer. Would love to have more of this all the time. (586 characters)

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Founders pint glass. Got it at the brewery, not more than a week old.

A - Clear dark golden yellow, almost orange. Eggshell head that leaves minimal lacing.

S - Peaches, cut grass, a little cat piss. Can also smell so light bread.

T - Follows nose. Stewed peaches, light citrus, a little cat piss. Light bready character on finish. Finishes dry, but not bone dry. You can still taste a hint of the peaches afterword.

M - Medium, but on the light side. Good blend of creaminess and crispness. Carbonation is medium.

O - Great subtle IPA. Lots of good flavors w/o being overwhelming bitter. (626 characters)

After enjoying Alpine's Nelson so much, I was overjoyed to be able to finally try this one. It pours a hazy orange color with some goldenrod highlights around the shimmering edges. The cloudy, white head settles nicely and sits on top of the brew looking chunky and fat, leaving behind some good clumps of lacing on the glass. Very nice unfiltered look; great for an IPA.

Duet's namesake is beautifully displayed in the aroma, as you can pick out the big contributions from the hop duet right away. Big-time nectarines, mangoes, pineapple, with mild undertones of citrus, likely from the Amarillo, with the wet, dank, pungent and piney side from the Simcoe. They form a beautifully harmonious union with the tropical explosion versus the raw, dank hoppage. A tropic palooza in the middle of an oily, hemp jungle.

Leading off is a strong dose of pine; why hello there, Simcoe! There's also a seemingly larger bout of tropical fruits right out of the gate; mangoes, orange, a touch of peach maybe. The taste, just like the aroma, exhibits great synergy by having perfectly even amounts of each hop - you've got the weedy, danky, hop oils thrashing the left side of your tongue while the tropical-fest of mangoes and papaya tears up the right side.

There's a pretty brash and bitter finish, more bitter in the finish than Nelson, and I'm going to guess that much of the finishing bitterness here is from Simcoe. There's a slight maltiness somewhere between toasted bread and caramel that never gets overly sweet, something that often ruins heavily hopped beers. Alpine knows what they're doing, though, and doesn't beat around the bush - Duet was meant to showcase the hops, and it does just that.

Duet is super crisp and drinkable, and I think it's carbonated a little better than Nelson and feels a little more lively on the palate (this could also be noted from the superior head formation and retention as compared to Nelson). It's not quite as sticky or resinous on the palate, rather it's kind of cutting at a rolling boil on my tongue and it really helps the hops shine.

Wow, another fantastic IPA from Alpine. Beautiful West Coast hops in a bottle; great balance of weedy pines and tropical fruit. This one's not quite as "juicy" as Nelson, and I think I prefer it slightly less, but that's like saying I couldn't go to Harvard and "settled" for Yale. Drinking beers like this make me sad I can't readily get them in the Midwest, because this is another truly fantastic and drinkable IPA. (2,499 characters)

650ml bottle 7,0% Abv.
Served chilled in an over sized wine glass.
No bottle date visible (WHY???)

A massive thanks to futura123 for this one.

Appearance: Duet appears a lightly hazed, bright golden orange in the glass (perhaps one shade lighter than Pure Hopiness), with a rough pour generating a large white head. The head lasts fantastically well and coats the glass in some great looking lacing as it slowly recedes.

Smell: Mmmm, it has been far too long since I had a sweet fruity IPA! The nose is absolutely bursting with hoppy goodness, with Amarillo clearly taking the lead. Notes include: Fresh orange juice, tangerine, mango, pineapple, a little red grapefruit, some leafy notes and just a hint of honey malt.

Taste: As the nose suggested, this is one delicious IPA. A big juicy tropical fruit character dominates the initial flavour, with notes of sweet orange, tangerine and mango. These notes are soon joined by red grapefruit, some dank leafy notes and the faintest hint of honey malt. Grapefruit pith as well as a solid bitterness are present in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium-high level of carbonation.

Overall: Duet is a fantastic IPA, it is bursting with flavour, but remains ridiculously drinkable. I would kill to have a keg of this stuff over the summer! (1,308 characters)

Got in a trade with TopsecretWaffle. 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but should be very fresh. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, peach, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, grass, honey, bread, light pine, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with big tropical/citrus hop complexity with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of lemon zest, tangerine, orange zest, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, floral, grass, honey, bread, light pine, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, mango, pineapple, peach, floral, honey, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of citrus/tropical hops; with a good malt balance that doesn’t overpower the hops; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic IPA! Tons of big hop complexity and a moderate malt balance; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering. (1,349 characters)
